Carry your hard drive in your pocket... and then some

Researchers at Arizona State University have figured out a low cost, low energy way to store data. They claim they could store 1 terabyte (between 931.3 and 1,099.5 gigabytes depending on if they're using the computer science or marketing version of the terms for both terabyte and gigabyte). With this you could literally carry around multiple computer hard drives in your pocket. Granted, computer storage will grow in size as well and the first one won't be made for 18 months. Still, if this isn't just vaporware, it will be very cool.

I absolutely thought this post was going to be a variation on the old joke "...or are you just happy to see me."

Sounds like it might be an easy way to backup your hard drive, too. Wouldn't that be great?
